How It Happened

  • York, who received votes in this week's Penn Monto/NFHCA Division III Coaches Poll, scored all three goals off penalty corners.

  • St. Mary's kept York off the scoreboard for the remainder of the first half as junior goalkeeper Alyssa Thompson (Arnold, Md./Broadneck) notched three saves and junior midfielder Sophie Michel (Westminster, Md./Westminster) added a defensive save.
  • Taylor picked up an unassisted goal at 41:27 after putting back the rebound of a Posey shot.
  • Posey and Taylor combined once again for York's third and final goal. Taylor inserted the ball to the top of the 16-yard circle and Posey ripped a rocket of a shot into the lower right corner.
